Swing Analysis: Jimmy Walker Hits the High Bunker Shot

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

This is a very cool shot of Jimmy Walker hitting the perfect high and soft bunker shot under the extreme heat of a major championship. We have seen more of the players move to a squarer stance with all their bunker shots, but here Walker demonstrates the extreme cut across method with the feet way open to the left and the face way open to the right.

Yep. This is the classic (and best) way to play the high soft bunker shot. I really don’t get the squared up stance, unless it’s for a much longer shot. The real key in my mind is to allow the club to pass the hands at impact. One of the few times where flipping it pays off. And one should also aim slightly left of where you want the ball to finish as it has a tendency to skip a little right on landing.
